Organizer: No Lost Generation and Asylum Seeker Assistance Project
Organizer of Join NLG and ASAP’s First Annual Thanksgiving Celebration!
The Asylum Seekers Assistance Project (ASAP) is the first and only nonprofit dedicated to serving the estimated 25,000 asylum seekers in the D.C. Metro region. An asylum seeker is a person who applies for refugee status after they enter the U.S. Our mission is to support the safety, stability, and economic security of asylum seekers and their families. Our goal is to create a scalable safety net to ensure that all persons fleeing persecution are given the chance to contribute to their new community and reach their full potential.
Established as a task of the U.S. State Department, No Lost Generation (NLG) is a university student movement that aims to support those who have been affected by the global refugee crisis. NLG is present at more than 50 colleges and universities across the United States. NLG chapters from Georgetown, George Washington, and American University will be represented at this event.

Thanks to my good friend Professor Lindsay Harris of the David A. Clarke School of Law at UDC for forwarding this.
I am thankful for dedicated lawyers like Lindsay and her colleagues who are inspiring and leading the resistance to this Administration’s “War on Due Process & Asylum Seekers.” As Jeff Sessions’s recent unprovoked and false attack on asylum seekers shows, never has support for the rights of asylum seekers and refugees and what they do for our country been more important. Fight the false narratives with truth and action by supporting groups like ASAP!
